Squirrel Do Bad (Trubble Town, Book 1)

Stephan Pastis

From the creator of the New York Times best-selling Timmy Failure series comes a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, full-color graphic novel series about a quirky town and its even quirkier residents - just right for young readers looking for longer books.

Wendy the Wanderer has lived in Trubble Town her whole life but never had the chance to go exploring. For this reason, she thinks she was definitely misnamed. Her dad likes to know where she is to make sure she’s safe, so she’s never been anywhere on her own. Then, her dad leaves on a trip and the babysitter doesn’t reinforce all the usual rules. Or any of the usual rules! Suddenly, Wendy is free to do what she wants, and what she wants is to live up to her name … and find Trubble.

Turns out, there’s lots going on in Trubble Town. As she encounters endearingly goofy animals and hilariously hapless townsfolk, Wendy’s very first adventure takes more twists and turns than she could have ever expected. She learns some really valuable life lessons and even teaches a few of her own.


Welcome to Trubble Town where our protagonist Wendy has decided to rebel against an overprotective parent. This process begins with consuming an excess of sugar and descends into total chaos for the Trubble Town residents, and an explosion at the mayor’s office!

Trubble Town is home to all kinds of weirdos and critters who Wendy meets in her travels. There’s a guy in a peanut costume known as Nutman and three radical activist moles named Myrtle, Girdle and Menace to Society. There’s a heartbroken hairless chihuahua and the town judge is a koala open to taking bribes of eucalyptus leaves. There’s also a squirrel who must be stopped at all costs, which leads to a noteworthy abundance of Looney Tunes-style explosives.

Stephen Pastis will be known to many readers as the creator of the well-loved Timmy Failure series. Featuring simple artwork, Pastis’ unhinged new graphic novel series sits perfectly alongside the Wimpy Kid and Dog Man books. It’s a chaotic, funny and dynamite-filled distraction for those who partake in its hijinks. For ages 8+.
